Pullman’s Potential Pulling Power A new hotel brand boasting a legendary name in hospitality launches in Sydney in September. The Pullman is the first 5-star hotel to open in the city since the 2000 Olympics, so - fittingly - it’s opening at Sydney Olympic Park. The Beijing Olympics may last just two weeks, but the Olympic flame is set to continue burning for Australian PCOs with the launch in September of the MICE-friendly Pullman hotel at Sydney Olympic Park - the first 5-star hotel to open in Sydney’s west. The name “Pullman” is synonymous with luxury, with Pullman railway carriages revolutionising overnight train travel and dining in America and then Europe from the mid 19th century. With such a prestigious and pioneering reputation, the Pullman name was a natural for Accor’s innovative new hotel brand. Conviviality, calm and connectivity Pullman hotels have been designed to provide specific services and facilities to create an atmosphere that balances conviviality, calm and connectivity. This starts with the ‘Pullman Welcomer’ and continues through with 24 hour IT solutions, the all-day health club, a special communal dining table in Bacar restaurant, and the exclusive executive lounge, ideal for business or just cocooning. Why Sydney Olympic Park? Sydney Olympic Park is not only in the heart of western Sydney’s commercial region, it is Sydney’s fastest growing conference and events precinct. With many of Australia’s largest companies based there, and with a vast range of activities available in the Park, it is the perfect location for a conference, incentive or exhibition. A stylish new hotel The Pullman boasts a striking interior design by Joseph Pang, and not only do all rooms feature the incredibly comfortable and relaxing Pullman bed and latest in hi-tech facilities, many of the rooms also have spectacular views of the Sydney city skyline. The three function rooms are capable of hosting events for up to 220 delegates, and every conference is supported by a dedicated Events Manager and IT Solutions Manager. Conference opening offer Day delegate packages are available from $75 per person, and residential conference accommodation rates start from $210 per room. MICEnet readers who book a residential conference before 30 September 2008 will receive 6 bottles of French Champagne on conclusion of the event.* *Book and confirm the event by 30 September.
